I have in this week been a crew on the system development conference “Warm Crocodile Developer Conference” (http://thewcdc.net/). The conference was aimed for systems development with focus on programming. For me as a frontend developer I found it very exciting to learn more about the backend and the new trends that are – I believe that it is important to have knowledge of the technologies, if a frontend design should be successful.
Overall, it was just incredibly instructive and interesting to experience an IT conference for the first time. I got the experience that Information Architecture, User Experience, usabilitytesting etc. are not areas that did not have the right focus within system developing. Thus, I see a need for in the future to create a consulting business. Here, companies could have initially guidance and by this wayget a better focus on the savings and optimization possibilities, there are when focusing on things as UX and IA.
